'Make e-governance accessible to public'

Dear Comrades,

PANAJI: The central government is hoping to make government services more accessible to the public by employing technology.

Speaking at a consultative workshop on the topic, 'Citizen centric e-government', Rajendra Kumar, joint secretary, department of electronics and information technology, government of India, said "The vision is to make government services accessible to the common man in his locality." The goal was to cater to the basic need of the common man and the focus has been on service delivery, he said while speaking on the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP).

Speaking on the progress of NeGP, he said that out of 31 mission mode projects (MMPs), 23 have started delivering services. All core infrastructure projects are at advanced stages of implementation. State service delivery gateway (SSDG) is presently available in 11 states and this year is likely to be scaled to 25 states.

He said Goa has implemented a wide area network GBBN and the network has a much higher bandwidth. However, though Goa started SSDG two years back, the number of transaction is lower comparatively. "We would request the state to submit a roadmap on improving SSDG service rollout and transaction," said Kumar. On mobile service delivery (MSD), he said just one department had integrated with MSD.
